Congratulations to the Students’ Union’s Photosoc who were shortlisted for ‘Best Arts Society’ and ‘Most Improved Society’ at the National Societies Awards 2019 on Thursday 30 April and were awarded runners up in the ‘Most Improved Society’ category. In the last year, the society’s membership increased by an impressive 250% and it introduced new initiatives such as weekly practical sessions and photography trips.

The society was represented at the awards ceremony by Matthew Philipps (President) and Emma Cole (Secretary).

Well done also to the team involved in Insanity Radio. The station has been awarded a £9,950 grant from The National Lottery to help towards the redevelopment of Studio 1C (in the media suite) into a state-of-the-art multimedia space, which will benefit the student population, and the wider community of listeners. This upgraded studio will enable the many students who are involved in the three student media outlets (Insanity Radio, rhubarbTC and Orbital Magazine) to produce visual, radio and podcast content that will be useful experience for the modern workplace.

The students who were heavily involved in this project are; Jamie Woods (Station Manager-elect and project lead), Madeline Breed (Insanity Station Manager), Josh Barker (Rhubarb TV Station Manager) and Michelle Theil (Orbital Editor).
